Eastman Chemical Company Launches Plasticizer Solution Storefronts on SpecialChem


KINGSPORT, TN, (April 12, 2012) – Eastman Chemical Company announced the launch of the Eastman storefronts dedicated to non-phthalate plasticizers on SpecialChem’s plastic and elastomers formulation website as well as their adhesives and sealants formulation website.

The SpecialChem website portal is a global online marketing platform designed to help accelerate innovation and technology development in plastics & elastomers and adhesives & sealants formulation. The two new storefronts from Eastman on this platform offer information on why and where Eastman’s non-phthalate plasticizers are used, how they work, and how Eastman’s customers – and their customers – benefit from Eastman’s technology.

“Our extensive portfolio and application focus, coupled with our strength and diversity in plasticizers are all outlined in Eastman’s SpecialChem storefront," said Heidi Barnes, Business Director for Eastman’s Oxo and Plasticizer business. "Supported by our product innovation and technical expertise, readers will discover how Eastman offers a unique package of benefits to SpecialChem’s global community of decision makers, formulators, and compounders and was the logical channel to present our innovative technology.”

With more than 50 years of experience in providing novel plasticizer solutions, Eastman offers the broadest range of non-phthalate plasticizers in the industry. Plasticizers from Eastman are easy replacements for other general purpose and high solvating plasticizers including DINP, DPHP, and DOP. Broad sensitive application approvals for Eastman plasticizers include clearances through the US Food and Drug Administration’s Food Contact Notification Program and the European Food Safety Authority and European Commission.

Christophe Cabarry, CEO of SpecialChem, added, "We are pleased to have Eastman Chemical Company work with us. Our clients today count on SpecialChem to expose and diffuse their technology to the world's largest online community of chemicals and materials specifiers. With more than 500,000 members and millions of visits from professionals per year, we believe SpecialChem is the right platform to help Eastman’s ambitious growth and innovation plans, in a very effective way.”
